Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex

P-DTR is the first neurological manual therapy based on neurology, neurophysiology, biomechanics and basics of Applied Kinesiology. P-DTR is a neurological, reflexogenic system, which efficiently treats a wide spectrum of functional problems and solves musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, hormonal, chemical and emotional dysfunctions. Dysfunction is a physiological and reflexory disorder of the internal organs, which in most cases has a compensatory character. The main goal of the P-DTR treatment is to restore optimal reflexive activity of the nervous system to stimulus. This includes its motor and gland response, which would result in no symptoms of pain or discomfort perceived by the client, optimal range of motion and accurate appropriate adaptation to the conditions of the external environment. In other words, Neurological Health restores this way.

What can PDTR help with?

The results seen by myself and my fellow PDTR Practitioners are truly amazing and show that the limits of what PDTR can be used to help with are endless. 

The nervous system is the control centre of the body, and as PDTR is a modality that works with the nervous system it has the power to work with a huge number of symptoms that may be coming from sensitive receptors in your nervous system.

  • Limited range of motion or pain which prevents proper movement
  • Back pain, joint pain, knee pain and any other pain symptom
  • Muscle weakness
  • Headaches, dizziness, increased heart beats, anxiety
  • Digestive issues – abdominal pain, ibs, etc
  • Post operational rehabilitation
  • Rehabilitation from sport injuries
  • Eye sensitivity to light, problems with eye movement and smell

How is PDTR different?


This is why it can help conditions where conventional medicine, like physiotherapy, osteopathy, massage and acupuncture hasn’t helped.

How does PDTR work?

Unique to PDTR as a therapy, is an understanding of the role that sensory nerve endings (‘receptors’) play in the function and processes of the central nervous system. PDTR uses receptors to understand, assess and treat all kinds of dysfunction, pain and symptoms that humans experience.

PDTR is a neurological, reflexogenic system that efficiently treats a wide spectrum of functional problems and solves musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, hormonal, chemical, and emotional dysfunctions.

The main goal of the PDTR treatment is to restore the optimal activity of the nervous system to a stimulus. In other words, Neurological Health is restored.

PDTR is a very gentle, non-invasive, and painless method based on the real time manual effect of particular sensory receptors on the human body. Doctor Palomar created a unique system of neurological challenges and has discovered the predictable ‘rules’ that demonstrate how the central nervous system responds to stimulus.

How long will it take?

PDT-R is highly effective method of treatment and only a few appointments are required.

What I do differently

First I take a detailed injury history and assess current lifestyle, then I start to look at the current complaints and how they might link to any life style or historic events. I then start testing muscles ability to contract, relax and their range of motion in different positions. Once we have all of this information, we can start to test the receptors of the body and see how this effects the previous tests.

Who needs this treatment?

PDTR can be used to fix nearly any issue in the body. If you have pain that other therapies have failed to clear or a reoccurring pain/injury that is only cleared for short periods, then I can help.
